Warehouses can store a lot of products at different temperatures, and thus provide more efficiency in terms of cost in relation to daily deliveries to all stores. Warehouses operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Delivery vehicles for wholesale composite have trailers, divided into chambers, so they can keep three different temperature levels at the same time.
There are three main distribution centres in Poland (Tesco, 2010): • Teresin near Warsaw – 55 000 m2 (fresh and dry food) and 30 000 m2 (manufacturers), • Strykowo – 18 000 m2 (ensures delivery to the smaller shops) • Legionowo – 17 000 m2 (ensures delivery to the smaller shops).

Overview of the relations between Tesco and its suppliers is given in Appendix 2.
